Fantastic hotel! (7.5/10 on location)

Loved the hotel! Clean, modern, large rooms (comfy bed too)! Fantastic stay. 7.5/10 on location though, not as clean of an area, but the 2 minute walk to the tube (Aldgate East) was great! Would recommend! My only mark off was for the location... we stayed At another hotel previously on our travels to London and it was not as nice of a hotel but it was by Glouster station and a really clean area. It was still a good location because of the tube proimity.

Nice hotel

Pros: Location and cleanliness
Cons: Service and bed
Nice location a few steps to Aldgate East station and walking distance to Liverpool station. Room is also nice, clean and spacious but bed is too soft (for me) Hotel staff is just OK and helpful but if you expect such warm welcome or recognition, you might not get that.

Ideal location for seeing London. Immediate surroundings perhaps not aesthetically pleasing but on doorstep of Brick Lane & Spitalfields and one short tube ride to City. Hotel good standard and staff vert attentive.

What a great location only 5 minutes from tube station. Staff were fantastic and hotel was clean and room a lot bigger than I expected for London. Great variety of affordable restaurants nearby and a tesco supermarket as well. We loved it.
